Increasing Output and Reducing Costs in
Test and Assembly of Optical Components


In almost all industrial test and assembly processes, precise alignment of individual components is important to ensure the correct functionality of the final product and to improve the yield of the production process.

With increasing miniaturization on the one hand and increasing complexity and functionality of products on the other, the demand for precision is growing. This is especially the case for optical modules, elements and components that must be aligned exactly to achieve rated performance. Active alignment is an essential part of the automation solution to address these needs while easily scaling to volume.

But project success does not come from just one thing, it's a combination of several factors. For this reason, PI and Averna held their first joint webinar to review the right hardware, software, and combination of disciplines to create the ideal active alignment solution.

Topics include:

  • Industry trends and process requirements
  • Alignment methods
  • Process design
  • Technology of active alignment and implementation
  • Overall production benefits and ROI
